"At Once - is a home where the family is welcoming you into their space. The beach out front is all yours. It has space which allows you to enjoy me time. Victoria the caretaker and her husband EJ are very knowledgeable, so ask questions. EJ was born and raised in Abaco. Once there, you will be greeted in the morning or late afternoon/evening (we were formulate that Shaggy hang out with us lots) from Shaggy, local resident happy dog. Please make sure you leave out water and food. Shaggy is extremally friendly, and loves everyone. It was very hard to say goodbye to this amazing happy pup after 2 weeks. Make sure you take the kayaks out, head to the left and you will find a large freighter that was pushed ashore after the hurricane. If your looking for an island tour, you need Tanique, owner of Abaco Tours and Activities. She will create a tour or you can do what we did and create your own. Parrots are best seen early morning. Fox town at north of island is the end of the road and you can take a ferry to Freeport. We just enjoyed the beautiful small beach and local bar where we grabbed something to eat and a beer. South end of the island, end of the road, check out Nancy's restaurant and bar and hang out on the beach. We were the only ones there and saw stingrays, star fish and birds. Make sure you go check out Pete's gallery and pub. We made friends with local artists and had a blast learning about bronze sculpturing. Please check out the local business while on the island. Like the bakery at Treasure caye, best cinnamon rolls on the island. Treasure caye has a ferry that will take you to Green Turtle Caye. Yes, you need a golf cart, and check out some of the best beaches in the world. There is a small bar at north of the island and to get there, the dirt road is pretty beat up, but worth the trip. Take ferry to Hopetown for the afternoon. Rent bikes, like we did or golf cart. Check out the lighthouse and museum. If you are an animal lover (like us) then contact the animal shelter in Marsh Harbor. Lots of dogs were displaced after the hurricane. They need our help. Abaco Neem Farm is a great local organic business along with Abaco Big Bird Family Farm. The island is rebuilding and they are a strong community. We loved our time at At Once and the whole island. We made lasting memories with locals and local happy dog Shaggy. So go check out Abaco Island and stay awhile, you will not be disappointed at all! Cheers!"
